SH1 Auckland Harbour Bridge traffic bulletin:
Reminder: Sunday to Thursday Nights - until Thursday 12 October
Transit New Zealand reminds motorists and road users that night closures continue for the centre lanes of SH1 Auckland Harbour Bridge. The outer (clip-on) lanes are open throughout.
CLOSED from 8pm until 5am Sunday to Thursday Nights
. All four centre lanes (both northbound and southbound) on the Auckland Harbour Bridge
As part of ongoing bridge maintenance, the centre lanes are being closed so welding can take place safely on the bridge deck below. Preparations are also being made for a new guard rail to protect the arch in the event of a vehicle colliding with the bridge.
The work is being carried out at night to limit the impact on motorists. In the event of significant delays, Transit New Zealand will review the closures.
Transit New Zealand apologises for any inconvenience. The closures are part of an ongoing programme to look after the harbour bridge and ensure its continued existence long into the future.
In the event of poor weather or other unforeseen circumstances, further notices will advise new dates as appropriate.
